Ethan - A Warrior Fighting Atypical HUS Annual Auction. Ends 10/2
Please read at the bottom of the header for what's next.
I am running this auction to raise funds for my son’s ongoing medical care. In January of this year he was diagnosed with Atypical HUS. A rare disease for which there is no cure. This disease breaks down his red blood cells and creates clots which then block and shut down his kidneys and other organs. He spent 30 days in Primary Children's Hospital and is home fighting strong. He is currently on a very heavy medication regime including Eculizumab at $12k per dose which he receives thru IV infusion every other week at the children’s hospital.
Fortunately our insurance has been able to cover most of the expenses; however there are additional medication, travel and monthly payments to be paid this year and every year forward since there is currently no cure or alternate treatments.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my auction. Please feel free to Geekmail me with any questions that you may have regarding more information on this disease or the auction itself.
** All games are from a smoke and pet free home and are brand new in shrink unless otherwise noted.
Here are a few rules of the auction
1. PRICES: Most games will be listed with a soft reserve, I reserve the right to not sell the item if the bidding does not reach that level. The prices on any item without bids may be changed at any time.
2. BIDDING: Bidding prices start at $1 per game. Please bid in whole increments of $1 or more.
3. SHIPPING: Shipping charge will be actual cost from 84067 USA and will be paid by the winner. I will ship via USPS, or Fedex (buyer's choice). International bidders are welcome! Local pickup is welcome as well. I will combine shipping on multiple items. Due to the size of this auction please allow 3-5 business days after payment has been received for your games to be shipped out.
4. PAYMENT: All transactions will be done through the BGG marketplace so BGG will get its 3% commission. Payment to be made via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
5. AUCTION END: Auction for each item will close on the evening of October 2nd, 2013. UPDATE: Here's more of a definition on the "evening" close time. I will close the auction sometime after 6pm Mountain Standard Time. This could be 1 hour after, two hours, 4 hours, whenever. I have a time in mind and will close comments when it is finished. I wish I could get more specific but I want to avoid sniping and BGG doesn't have a system in place like other auction sites that would allow you to be away from the auction and have your account bid on your behalf.
Many thanks to those who have donated and bid on this auction. I am humbled by the generosity of those in this community
